Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 April 2016
A lot of pressure to preform, and little rewards. Very high expectations by management. High stress environment. Not a lot of training - had to learn as you go. High turn over rate. I have learned a lot about logistics though - but it was a lot of self taught knowledge.

Some of the highlights of the Job. 1. You loose that extra fat every day. Its non stop action from start to end. 2. You get to watch and learn. and have the opportunity to create your own idea. 3. The hardest part of my job was moving a truck full of car tiers.
Casual Operator Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 March 2016
I have been with Loomis Express for many years. It is a very relaxed environment, with many different positions. It is unionized so you must obide by all union agreements and terms. The pay is not the greatest.
CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 27 January 2016
busy day at the office, learned geography for Canada. The management team is great to work with. The staff in the office is easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job is the Christmas rush to get all parcels delivered before the holidays. Enjoyable part is slow time.
Customer Service and Administration (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 31 May 2015
Worked here for over 5 years - very flexible while I was in school, amazing pay for part time. Management made a lot of on the fly decisions that at time made no sense. Unionized environment which can create a lot of office politics. Overall good place to work, steady hours and employment.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 19 April 2015
A typical day would require me waking up early to get to a store as it opens, usually a new location every two days. I was to oversee the implementation of a new accounts system, and show the current salespeople how to operate it. In addition, I was to record any comments they have about it, as well as any problems encountered when attempting to use it. The people at each location were generally quite friendly. The hardest part of the job was trying to fill in the times when there were no customers (as many locations were in small towns). Overall it was very enjoyable, as I like to travel and see the country as well as meet new people who do similar work. I also like to train, and feel like I am very thorough and communicative.
Lots of travelling and meeting new people. Dynamic environment.
Provided me with the opportunity to improve my skills in the office.

I opened as well as closed each day. I was required to receive and distribute parcels, our heaviest being approximately 80lbs. Scanning parcels in the office so customers as well as different office locations could track there location. Handling in-store and over-the-phone clientele inquiries.
Socializing with our regulars
No breaks, unpaid lunches, and the hours didn't cooperate well with childcare
Customer Counter Specialist (Former Employee) – Williams Lake, BC – 20 June 2014
In total I was employed seven and one half years. With Loomis I gained very valuable administrative-office/customer service training and experience. My co-workers were great to work with and very helpful if needed. The salary and benefits are great, much more than anyone would imagine.
